SMVG is also home to the Seven Stones Plaza, which celebrates indigenous people – seven Southern Paiute tribes known collectively as Nuwuvi (or "the people") and their longstanding ancestral relationship with their creation place in the Spring Mountains. The SMVG is both a destination and a gateway to provide visitors with everything needed to appreciate and enjoy the Spring Mountains.
